Organization

The area used for this exercise is half of a pitch. Some meters further on the halfway line place a marker. At 30 meters from the goal place 3 markers, one in the center and two close to the touchlines. Players A, B, C and D go to their respective markers (See picture). On the limit of the penalty area place the two forwards (E and F). Give a ball to player A.

Description
  • This is an example of how to develop the exercise:
  1. A executes a medium-long pass towards forward E, who meanwhile executes a come and go movement to get closer to the pass
  2. E executes a support at first touch towards B
  3. B, at first touch, passes the ball as accurately as possible to the space towards C, who meanwhile has sprinted in depth along the touchline towards position C1
  4. Forwards E and F get in the area to execute a crossing motion between them on E1 and F1, while C hits a lofted ball inside the area
  5. F shoots at goal

Once the action is done, players quickly go back to their positions and get ready to repeat the exercise from the opposite side

 

Coaching Points
  • Exchanges between players are done as fast as possible and in the proper moment to avoid the intervention of rivals during a match
  • Pay attention to the incorporation moment from the outside and to the crossing motion moment of the forwards
  • The player, during the execution of the lofted ball, must close the skill after hitting the ball accompanying the trajectory with the leg
  • Use all attacking players that are in the team. Each player goes to their usual position.
